Jessica Spin-Dance

Jessica Spin-Dance from the other morning.
She loved her dress and was spinning around the house.
I had to stop the camera before the crash so that I could help her up off the floor.  She's definitely got my coordination, ah well.

Long Distance Crawling Champ - Alexis

Alexis is now the official Long Distance Crawling Champ of our Living Room!

Here's a video

(please unfocus your eyes for Jessica's baby-toys zone... it is pointless for us to clean it up, because she dumps everything out immediately)

Instead, be amazed by Alexis the Awesome! :)
So proud, but I know we have to do some massive child-proofing (I was going to write baby-proofing) but Alexis is definitely a child!

Watch out for her at school, Perkins family!  She'll be at the computer and keyboard when you're not looking....

A is for Alexis

By now, some of you may have already seen this - but in case you haven't.  I was included on Children's Hospital Boston's Thrive Blog as a guest blogger.  

I hope you all enjoy the article:

As you all know, the road with Alexis has been hard - but worth every moment of it.  Thank you each for all of the prayers, great comments and well wishes - we need them from you.  I've said before that it takes a Village to Raise our kids.  Thanks for helping be our village, and now thanks to 3900+ likes on Facebook for Children's link - it's getting even bigger.    (their post to the same article is here:

Camp Photos - Dream Day on Cape Cod

Pictures from Camp

Monday Activity - Whale Watch!  Matt got lots of other pictures, but they really don't do it justice.  We probably saw about 15 different Whales.  It was spectacular!

Jessica actually sitting still for about 1 second.
The girlz.  :)

 Tuesday Nickerson State Forest Pond - Beach..... (it's fresh water with sandy entrance)

hot pants Alexis.  unhappy in the pond water.

Bathing girls.

Jessica was our water baby for this trip.

Wednesday: Fishing on the Dock

Thursday: Face paintings.  Jessica is a puppy, a cute one!  
Alexis had a flower on her hand but wiped it off about 15 seconds after she noticed it.

Camp Photos tomorrow

This past week we spent time on Cape Cod, but not like a normal vacation. 
A Family Camp for special kids, with special counselors and great activities.

They also have a Facebook page, enjoy

They welcome families from all over - so apply and come visit Massachusetts.  We actually got Alexis to go in the Ocean - a first!
